A 10,500 km solo kayak expedition
Reverse the bad
Halifax-Chicago-Fort Myers-New York-Halifax
WHAT IS THE GREATER LOOP?
Starting in Halifax, I will paddle to the St. Lawrence Seaway and through waterways and lakes all the way to Chicago. There, I will join the Illinois River to reach the Mississippi. Later, I will kayak the Kentucky Lakes eventually reaching the Gulf of Mexico. Navigating to Florida, I will make my way up the east coast all the way back to Halifax, Canada.
WHAT IS REVERSE THE BAD?
Many people have encountered and overcome tremendous setbacks, while others are simply nudging society in ways so positive that it overtakes the negative. We can choose to Reverse the Bad, take the opposite side of the argument, that is, do what is good.
Starting June 1, 2022, I will kayak 10,500 km to raise money for two worthy causes. The tour is called Reverse the Bad and will combine an adventure with nature, people and cultures. I am looking to talk with and write about people who have reversed their bad into something good.
I strongly believe in building strong local communities. Each person and company are makers of change. That is, important players in developing caring, responsible and stronger local communities.
During the REVERSE THE BAD tour, I will meet makers of change, people and companies influencing their communities either through small weekly, monthly and yearly efforts, or long-term social enterprise initiatives.
